Katsina Emirate suspends district head for being linked to banditry

Abubakar Yusuf, the district head Kankara has been suspended by Katsina Emirate after being connected to banditry.

Due to complaints from residents and a security report indicting Yusuf, he got suspended.

Alhaji Mamman Ifo, Sarkin Yakin Katsina and secretary to the Katsina Emirate Council told BBC Hausa that the sanction of the traditional ruler was meant to complement government’s efforts in the ongoing fight against banditry in the state.

Mannan Ifo said the emirate had already set up a special committee to investigate the allegations against the district head.

He said once the commission completed its investigation, it would submit its report to the government, and if it was established that the embattled district head was not guilty, he would be reinstated.
